Just bought an '84 R100RT...need brake help

I just bought an '84 BMW R100RT from e-bay and it arrived Monday. The bike needs a lot more than the seller told me about and specifically needs the front brakes overhauled (the right side caliper and line was missing and the rotor is cracked). This bike had the dual Brembo setup and I intend to find a Brembo caliper to install for the right.

What rotors should I buy?
What pads?
Should I buy some Galfer steel braided lines or something else?

Hey, thanks for this link. I am redoing all the lines, M/Cs, etc on an '82 R100RT I picked up on CL for $950 from a disgruntled owner who had spilled brake fluid on the cockpit and battery acid on the frame during maintenance (He ran into the house, posted the object of his anger on CL; I bought it 15 minutes later).

This link looks like a really nice assist to those of us who have only dabbled (dribbled) in brakes.
